UAE to develop indigenous SATCOM solutions
The Tawazun Economic Council and United Arab Emirates- (UAE-) based satellite services operator Yahsat signed an MoU on 23 February to establish a new company to develop national SATCOM capabilities.
The new company will develop ‘critical in-country capabilities in relation to the development and manufacture of advanced satcom solutions within the UAE, with a focus on building intellectual property locally for increased national security and advanced technology development’, Yahsat announced in a statement.
However, ‘select international experts’ will be approached to support this objective.
There will be a focus on developing three types of deliverable: aeronautical SATCOM products; other SATCOM products and technologies; and satellite modem technologies.
The first seed project entails the development of a protected, multi-platform satellite modem for the government and defence markets in the UAE and abroad.
